Safeguarding in the voluntary and community sectors

The Luton Safeguarding Children Board endorses the Safe Network’s national safeguarding standards and accompanying guidance.

The Safe Network standards have been designed to help non-statutory organisations put in place clear safeguarding arrangements and ensure that work undertaken by groups and organisations with children and young people up to the age of 18 years:

  • Takes appropriate responsibility for protecting children from abuse
  • Minimises as far as reasonably possible the risk that children will suffer serious accidental injury
  • Is enjoyable, adventurous and rewarding for all involved
  • Complies with legislation
